Test results have confirmed that Zoono’s Z-71 Microbe Shield is 99.99% effective against Covid-19, also known as the coronavirus.
The virus continues to cause havoc around the world and has the ability to survive on surfaces for up to 9-days.
Zoono is a New Zealand-based company, which sells products such as hand sanitisers and surface sprays that are commonly used in high traffic places like hotel rooms, ride-share car interiors, and underground trains in over 30 countries.
Zoono produces sprays, wipes and foams suited for skincare, surface sanitisers, and mould remediation treatments. The products are based on the ‘zoono molecule’, an anti-microbial molecule that bonds to any surface and kills pathogens including bacteria, viruses, algae, fungi and mould.
The protective ‘pins’ on the surface remain intact and effective for up to 30 days.
Zoono founder and chief exec, Paul Hyslop said previous testing completed in Europe has shown Zoono to be effective against the entire coronavirus family.
"A few years ago we tested against the MERS virus. The accepted surrogate conveniently was the coronavirus, almost identical strain to the current one. This was very opportune as we show greater than 99.99 per cent effectiveness even after diluted 50 per cent with water —this is the EU standard — so you can safely say we are effective against the coronavirus family of viruses," he told the Australian Financial Review in February.
Zoono’s Z71 Microbe Shield Surface Sanitiser and GermFree24 Hand Sanitiser products were recently sent to a German laboratory for further testing against the latest strain of the coronavirus originating from Wuhan, China.
